Is the mindmapping method the "End All be All" note taking system? Hardly. But it's great for complex matters and concepts, drafting novels and in general make sense of a boiled head.
However, more than tricks, this book is loaded with motivational stories to make you stop whining and start creating something. For that alone it is a good read.
This book was a pleasant surprise. Packed with insights on how to start thinking more creatively and stories about famous thinkers of history (Da Vinci, Einstien, Newton) used their minds.
Some of the suggestions discussed: use illustrations in your note taking, generate ideas - your power to generate ideas is infinite, see the relationships between things, improve your vocabulary, brainstorm, slow down, etc.
The key to it all is associations. In physics and nature and other things, there are similar systems and ideas.
Relate to new ideas by forming associations to what you already know.
Listen to different types of music, read a variety of books and read often.
I really liked this book and see it as a start to my journey to understanding creativity.
